Homoeopathy is a system of medicine that uses miniscule amounts of potentised substances to stimulate the body to heal itself.   It is a sure and gentle method that treats the whole person and not just the disease.   The word ‘homoeopathy’ was taken from the Greek omeos, meaning ‘similar’, and pathos, meaning ‘suffering’.  Thus, homoeopathy means ‘to treat something that produces an effect similar to the suffering’.

The homoeopath, in examining the patient, asks exhaustive questions about every aspect of the symptom(s), when the symptoms started, type of pain, colour, what makes it feel worse/better, changes of temperature, appetite and mood.   The practitioner is building a complete, unique picture of the whole body in order to select a remedy.
